All Red Potatoes and Breakfast for Dinner

Robbie's All Red Potatoes with Tofurky Sausage

Robbie’s All Red Potatoes with Tofurky Sausage

Last week, when I got home from work late one evening, my honey had breakfast for dinner waiting in the oven. All Red Potatoes with Tofurky Sausage, dribbled with creamy goat cheese, warm and waiting. All Reds aren’t ordinary red-skinned potatoes; they are all red, that is red both inside and out.

All Red Potatoes

All Red Potatoes

All Red Potatoes, also known as Cranberry Red Potatoes, are hybrids, bred circa 1980’s. They feature a fine, moist and creamy texture, rich earthy flavor, and unusual color—bright red skin. Under that skin, their flesh is pink red, a bright color that doesn’t fade with cooking.

Breakfast for dinner is part of Robbie’s recipe repertoire. He sautés onions, bell peppers and potatoes, and once they are golden and tender, he scrambles eggs right into the pan. Cheese melted over top and salsa on the side—a perfect 20-minute dinner.

Robbie’s All Red Potatoes make a gratifying breakfast, especially if it’s breakfast for dinner. Everyone will be ooh-ing and aah-ing and exclaiming, “Look how red they are!”

When All Reds were in our Ranui Gardens CSA box last month, we turned the ruby spuds into stunning potato salad. My Mom’s Potato Salad. Thanks Garlic Farmer John for planting these very special gems.

Recipe Notes

Robbie transferred everything to an oiled 9 x 13-inch pan and sprinkled the goat cheese on top. He covered with foil and held it at least a half-hour, until I got home.

  • Last night, oddly enough, about all we had in the house were baby potatoes that were getting old and really needed to be used up, plus veggie sausage & goat cheese so I tried this out. I had a small head of broccoli and a couple brussel sprouts so i tossed those in after the potatoes had been cooking about 10 minutes. My sausage was the frozen pre-cooked kind (morningstar), so i put it in a little later, about 20 minutes in. I added some red bell pepper when the potatoes were just about done. It was delicious!I didn’t have the special all-red potatoes, but the small red-skinned ones seemed to work fine, and they weren’t even all that fresh either 🙂 Thanks Aunt Letty!
